We just migrated Exchange 2007 to 2010 and mail is working however the rekeyed SSL cert is not allowing for us to log into OWA without certificate error or use mobile devices which require SSL.

Please advice on best course of action.

I had to go home I worekd from 7am to 12am.
I just tested this fromhome for activesync, here is the error.

I am able to access OWA from offsite location but cannot authenticate.

      
      Test Steps
       
      Attempting to test potential Autodiscover URL https://milsysgroup.com/AutoDiscover/AutoDiscover.xml
       Testing of this potential Autodiscover URL failed.
       
      Test Steps
       
      Attempting to resolve the host name milsysgroup.com in DNS.

      Test Steps
